Wink greetings ladies and gentlemen!

hi, i am a 28 year old guy originally from the south. i was actually looking for an upgrade from my old car and that is how i chanced upon Team-BHP (through google, how else!). i wonder how TBHP happened so late to me.

what am i? a graduate of the naval academy to begin with. the most valuable and interesting piece of transportation that i owned was the concorde racing cycle which i exploited and adored for 12 long years. then the yatchs happened after which i learnt to fly. it was much later that i learnt to ride a bike and (hold your breath) it was after i bought my first car that i learnt to drive- all by myself, no tutors. so you have a rough idea of my likes in automotives. i have about 45000 kms of driving, 20 000 miles of sea sailings, 200000 miles of flying and yeah a couple of international medals in yatching, and a 29th finish in the world championships. i am an avid reader,windsurfer, writer, amateur photographer, sea swimmer, and sharpshooter (and yapper).

till now i have owned an indica and am planning upgrade to an OHC or (thanks to all the comments that i have been thru at TBHP) a baleno. would like to own a PRB sometime with a private jetty


ps.. the largest power plant that i handled was sixty five thousand bhp

Welcome Antony, that's a very impressive intro. You'll have a great time learning about cars and teaching sailing and flying to our boys who are mostly stuck in land.

BTW, aren't flying records measured in hours.

Nobody is going to beat you there I suppose.

Default well!

thank you all for the warm welcome.

i am mildy suprised that there are even three women in the forum. one of my ex was that kind. she would always be looking for the end of the accelerator in a bike, trying a hand at wheeling or make the sharpest u turns at the fastest speed possible. no doubt we met with an accident on the first date.

yes- i am a product of the naval academy. 58th batch actually

the FE-- lol-- now that comes to about 60 tonnes of diesel to 40 km

my concorde was a racing bike 5 litre catalytic engine, 50 bhp and of course the FE was something like 70 km on two chapatis

Welcome to TBHP, Antony. Thats a very interesting introduction - I dont think any of us (or all of us) can claim to have had that many bhp under their belts (except people like Xsailor, perhaps).
